Week 6 of the Copa MX is the decisive and final week of the Copa MX group stage. Quick recap about the Copa MX: seven groups of four teams each, first place out of each group advances to knockout stages, along with the best second placed team (just 1), for a total of eight teams. As of now, only Group 3 has been decided with Pachuca as the winner and a pass to the next round, but there are still seven other spots up for grabs. No one else has a guaranteed spot; this makes for a very interesting week where almost every game has a team with a legit chance to progress in the Copa MX.
My pick for Copa MX match of the week is… Morelia vs Leon! They are both tied in Group 1 with ten points each, and the winner takes the group. The interesting part, is that if they tie and Dorados wins, Dorados wins the group and both Leon and Morelia would be eliminated!

**Yes, Univision Deportes Network currently has FOUR games scheduled on at the same time on the same channel. It is something this shoddy network has been doing all season long with their tv scheduling, and one of the many reasons why I hate the existence of the UDN. I will update the tv schedule as soon as I know, although UDN usually doesn’t bother to do it.
